PREFACE. 



At the last session of the Maine Legislature, by a resolve duly- 
passed and approved by the governor, provision was made for 
continuing the publication of York Deeds. The resolve provides 
that the Maine Historical Society agreeing to supervise the copy- 
ing, attesting, editing, indexing and publishing of volumes VII 
and VIII of the public records of the state in the Registry of 
Deeds for York county, in the same creditable manner as in six 
preceding volumes already published, the state would take and 
pay for at the rate of five dollars per volume, four hundred and 
fifty copies of each volume. It was understood at the time that 
Mr. William M. Sargent of Portland who had made copies from 
the original records for the six preceding volumes, and had edited 
the last two, and who had been the chief instrumentality in secur- 
ing the passage of the resolve for continuing their publication, 
would have the editorial charge of the two volumes provided for, 
and he being a member of the Maine Historical Society, his des- 
ignation by that body to supervise the work would unquestionably 
have been made, which would have sufficiently complied with the 
conditions of the resolve. Anticipating favorable action by the 
Legislature, and his own appointment by the Society, Mr. Sargent 
had perfected his plans for continuing the work, when he was 
suddenly taken sick, and a few days thereafter, on the twenty - 
ninth day of March, he died. 

The loss to the enterprise by the sudden demise of Mr. Sargent 
seemed almost irreparable, and indeed there was no man that could 
fully supply his place ; but the plans had been made by him and 
the foundation laid in accordance therewith, thus making it easy 
for his successor to superintend the work. 

Mr. Sargent was an enthusiast in historical and genealogical 
research, a life-long student of our colonial history, and his large 
experience in the investigation of early land titles had rendered 
him thoroughly familiar with the state archives in the Registry of 
York county. He was an expert in deciphering ancient writing, 



6 Preface. 

and in copying the material for the first six volumes he became 
master of the situation. Ail doubtful orthography of names of 
places and persons had been cleared up, and all the peculiarities 
in the handwriting of the early recording officials had become as 
plain and intelligible to him as his own beautiful chirography to 
others. He above all was the one best qualified to continue the 
work with which he had been connected from the very first. 

The death of Mr. Sargent rendered it necessary for the Maine 
Historical Society, in order to comply with the conditions of the 
resolve, to appoint a committee in his place, and at a meeting of 
the Society held on the ninth of May last, at which I was not 
present, but whose action was officially announced to me on the 
eighteenth, I was appointed as that committee. In view of the 
fact that the three persons most interested in the work of pub- 
lication had departed this life since the enterprise was suggested 
by Mr. John T. Hull, I must here confess that I accepted the 
position assigned me by the Society after much hesitancy. 

The contract for the publication of volumes VII and VIII 
had been given by the Society to the Brown Thurston Com- 
pany of Portland who had published the six preceding volumes. 
Their proof-readers had read the preceding volumes by copy, 
and had thereby gained a knowledge of the ' peculiarities of 
the work and Mr. Sargent's methods of conducting it, which has 
left little to be done by the committee in the way of proof-read- 
ing. I have given to the work all the supervision it has seemed 
to require. I visited the town of Alfred, where the volumes are 
deposited, in the early stage of the work, and remained there long 
enough to satisfy myself that everything there was properly con- 
ducted, and I have carefully read the signatures as they have 
issued from the printing press. 

The volume of the York Deeds of which this volume is a 
transcript, was opened May 29, 1704, and closed July 7, 1713. It 
is in an excellent state of preservation considering its great age, 
and the amount of handling it has sustained. It covers a period 
of the resettlement of Casco Bay, and many of the conveyances 
during that time were of lands in that vicinity, but the records in 
ithis volume present nothing startling -» nothing out of the usual 
course of such transactions. It is believed, however, they will be 
found interesting and of great value to the historical student, and 
especially those interested in the origin of titles to real estate

located in Maine, who cannot conveniently refer to the original 
books. Every means possible has been used to reproduce in 
print the original manuscripts, excepting the plans ; they have 
been reduced in size so as to admit each on a single page. An 
explanation to the contractions of the text in this volume may 
be found in the preface of the first volume. 

The numbering of the folios in the manuscrip book is incor- 
rect. The first folio covers three pages. There are two folios 
numbered fifty-two; there is no folio numbered fifty-eight; 
there are two folios numbered one hundred and one ; and there 
are two folios numbered one hundred and nineteen. 

The expense incident to the work of transcribing and printing 
sustained by the state in comparison to the convenience of having 
authenticated copies of each volume of the original records 
deposited in each Registry of Deeds, as provided for by the 
resolve of the last Legislature, is indeed small, but the full value 
and convenience to the public will not, it is believed, be wholly 
realized till all the records of the state archives at the Alfred 
Registry of Deeds, prior to the year 1760, when the territory of 
the District of Maine was divided into counties, have been pre- 
served by printed copies filed in the Registry of Deeds of the 
several counties.
